I love you...chickadee!

Love you chickadee
Hello and welcome!

Today's card was made again playing with embossing paste and using a falling hearts stencil. I added Ranger distress ink to the paste to color it red and then smoothed it over the stencil. I added some very fine glitter to the hearts after removing the stencil. I smeared the paste at the bottom and so ended up cutting that part off and popping up the panel on a white heavy-weight card base after it dried. I used a cute favorite chickadee stamp (purchased at Michael's) to make the repeating hearts seem to be flowing out from his sweet little heart and, of course, stressing that he loves the recipient! A couple of white hearts covered in Wink of Stella shimmer framing the sentiment completes the card!

I know I promised a giveaway last week but working full time is wearing me out! I know, I'm a wimp! But I will get the giveaway all arranged soon! I'm going to have it be both here and on Instagram and my blog's Facebook page and I need to figure out how to arrange all that before going forward with it! Forgive my weariness! And continue to stay tuned! Sign up for blog notices, follow me on Instagram (Alaska.Kris) and Facebook (Alaska Forget Me Not Designs)!
